"My friend, Anne, is the first person I met who eats chocolate and cheese cake".

It's rather funny that neither textbook nor teacher (nor parents) taught the answer, yet I'm supposed to know it...how do you do it?

Play with the sentence. "The first person I met who eats chocolate and cheese cake is my friend, Anne."

Does that help?

Person/is. Everything else modifies. Lots going on here, though. I see dotted lines in your future. "I met" and "who eats" are also simple sentences, so they get their own lines.
